Flash spr recovery the click install update. The good thing about spr is it wont flash an update.zip unless you click allow so let it do its thing and the install will be aborted. Or you can rename ocerts.so to ocerts.so.bak will get the full location for you in a sec
I accidentally let this install and now my phone is completely unrooted, which I could live with, however I cannot access my phone's settings and I have a constant error on my email client that I cannot get to go away because it just force closes when I try to open it.
Looks like the only way to fix this will be a full recovery unless anyone has any other solutions here
I tried the install block today and was successful. I'm running on rooted 2.2 OTA.
Flashed SPrecovery via Rom Manager, clicked "install and restart" on the flash update, phone rebooted and stuck at the "M" screen. I let it marinate for 20-30 seconds, did a battery pull and everything is fine now. No more annoying update notification.
Not sure if anyone else has gotten stuck at the first boot screen, but thought I'd share my experience just incase.
It SEEMED to work.. But the notifications have come back! I can do the same thing again, but is there not a more permanent solution? I don't want to have to deal with and OTA notification every couple of weeks..
Same thing happened to me. I am running the stock 2.2 ROM (the first one that didn't have flash) rooted. I got rid of the update message by booting into clockwork recovery and it went away. Today it came back. I am rebooting again into recovery to get rid of it (again).
1. In Root Explorer, go to /system/
2. Tap Mount R/W at the top, then long-press on build.prop and scroll down to Open in Text Editor
3. Once the file is open as a text file, scroll down until you see the line that says: "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG01B/45394:user/release-keys" and change it to read as follows:
4. Tap the back key and say "Yes" when it asks you to save (it will automatically back up the original file for you)
5. Tap Mount R/O at the top
